Bread Pudding {Recipe} Mmmmm

On a snowy evening there is almost nothing better than eating a warm dessert while you watch the snow fall. I have the perfect winter recipe to share with you today, Paula Deen's Bread Pudding. It is easy to make, tastes delicious and can be eaten for dessert or breakfast or both. Naturally, I did both.

2 cups Sugar
5 Eggs
2 cups Milk
2 tsp. Vanilla
3 Cups Cubed Bread with Crust on (I used French Bread)

1 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup butter (softened)
1 cup chopped Pecans

1 cup Sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup Butter
2 tsp. Vanilla

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.

Get out a large bowl and combine sugar, eggs, milk and vanilla. Stir to combine. Then add in the bread cubes and let soak for 10 minutes.

While bread cubes are soaking get out a medium sized bowl and add the brown sugar, butter and chopped pecans. Make sure you add softened butter and not melted butter so the consistency of these ingredients ends up looking like a crumble.

Evenly pour the bread mixture into a greased 9x13 pan. Sprinkle the brown sugar crumble evenly over the top of the bread mixture. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.

While bread mixture is cooling, make the sauce. Combine the sugar, egg, butter and vanilla in a medium sauce pan on medium heat until sugar has melted. Stir frequently. If you are feeling fancy go ahead and add a little brandy to the sauce.

Pour sauce over bread pudding, serve warm with ice cream!

I LOVE bread pudding and my mom used to make it pretty often. However, my husband would not eat it the first time I put a bowl of it in front of him and said, "Honey, here's some yummy bread pudding". It was the word "bread" that put him off. I waited a few months, then made it again and this time I called it brown sugar pudding. He ate it and loved it!

That looks amazing. I'm the worst when it comes to sweet stuff though. I just eat it all immediately and then feel terrible.
